The group is greeted by a local guide at the Lamperček Homestead. A local guide presents the route, distributes the leaflet to visitors, and invites them to the route before the more than 500-year-old linden tree (which was planted by the Turks as the main road connection to Carinthia passed through here).
Second point: Temnjaški stream
On the way from the first to the second point, there are stunning views of the Mozirje mountains and the Savinja Alps to the west. The Gorjančev mill guide explains the significance of the Temnjaški stream, which once housed 13 mills. They continue along the mill valley to the next point.
